Key Features

  •  Placeable cover and barricades
  •  3 teams
  •  RTS-style resource management
  •  Voting system for in-game upgrades
  •  Parkour Movement system

The Afflicted is a 3rd person shooter that pits 3 teams against each other in struggle for resources and power within a crumbling society.The Afflicted was developed from the beginning around the concept of player control.  First glances might give the impression of a typical third person shooter, but a few concepts set it apart.  It’s a game of cooperative team-building.  Players are scored on the collection of resources that allow them to shape the growth of their team.  A vital element of success is the creation of structures and barricades that can be placed at the whims of the players.  A free-form movement system allows for creative navigation and evasion.  The goal is to provide a refined, current-generation shooter that still manages to implement the kinds of choices that bring players back for more.

After almost a year in the shadows, The Afflicted has been retooled and is looking for a public playable demo in the near future. We're a small indie team, and we've been polishing the game to get it ready for the public as a free download. We're looking forward to getting feedback from our audience and seeing what you think!

We can't give out an exact release date just yet, but we wanted to give you a preview of what to expect. When we release our first playable, it will feature:

  • One gametype, the unique Scavenger Mode which is the basis of the core Afflicted gameplay. Capture control points while scavenging for resources to upgrade your team's arsenal!
  • 3 Characters, one per team. This includes two brand new character models presented in the screens, including the outlandish new team, the Psychos! We're only going to have the 3 characters for now, but we're looking into character selection and have more options for characters down the road!
  • Five weapons, each with 3 tiers of upgrades available to the team. There's also the deadly Jackhammer for building upgrades or slaughtering your foes in explicit fashion.
  • Two playable levels, including a retooled version of SinglePoint and a new level called Capitol. These levels each present different approaches to the multi-phase gameplay of Afflicted. We hope that you like them!

We're really excited to show you an update and look forward to providing more in the future. Make sure you check out all our new screenshots and the two new gameplay videos for SinglePoint and Capitol!

Great looking game. I'm seriously planning on applying to this collage soon, and I read about the game in the tech magazine they sent out. I'm not planning on going into the Game Development field, but it's really great to see what the collage can put out.

Not completely, the large majority of our team graduated from our university and are currently looking for positions in the industry as well as a way to support ourselves financially in the mean time. We have not had a ton of progress lately as we are shifting our schedules for full time work and development time as our secondary full time job.

We do appreciate your interest and thank you for following us this far. We will try and update this page if we get new updates!

Amazing graphics and art work! Any chance that the size of the 3pp can be changed so the player's model wont be as large of an object in front of the screen? I am guessing a first person perspective is out of the question?

Thanks for the interest! We had to adjust some of our scheduling in order to accommodate some revisions that we are making. We are pushing the game into a presentable state as fast as possible, but we don't want to provide a demo or alpha test until we feel that it is representative of the experience we want. Look out for updates in the coming weeks where we will be showing off new content, improved animations and better graphical quality!
